It breaks all. the. time. And drives me bananas.
There’s a little piece of plastic on the bottom of it that gets pressed in when you secure the pitcher to the base. You have to “lock” the pitcher in and secure the lid before the blender will even work.
That little piece of plastic breaks off all the time and you don’t realize it until your blender won’t turn on.
If you put the pitcher in too quickly, it will snap off. If you put the pitcher in with the lid already on, it will snap off. And if you remove the pitcher with the lid attached, it will snap off.
Scott is constantly supergluing that stupid piece of plastic on this blender probably every other week.
It broke one time too many and I threw a royal hissy fit in the kitchen. As a cook you want your appliances to work. You trust them because they are supposed to help you provide food to yourself and others.
When they don’t work, oh we can become very cranky.
This last time I was done. I told Scott that I was going to purchase THE blender.
You know what I’m referring to.
Scott, being wise (or maybe because he was frightened) just walked in the kitchen and said “I’ll fix it.”
So he did. With cardboard and duck tape.
Instead of gluing it again, he inserted some cardboard and taped it down. This is so the blender always registers that the pitcher is secure and can be used.
“If you think this means that everything is fine and I’m not buying THE blender, I’m sorry to say that assumption is incorrect.”
“Yeah, something that holds liquids and runs on electricity with a high powered motor I don’t think should come in contact with cardboard and duck tape for extended use.”
So my crap blender has been fixed for the time being but I will be purchasing THE blender shortly.
I will then be torching this blender and
roasting, toasting to it with a glass of the perfect frozen margarita and chips and hummus. All made with THE blender. You’re invited but you’ve got to bring your own glasses.
